Imagine the cinematic masterpiece Vertigo retold by its tragic heroine: that heroine, Judy Barton may be the most-watched and least-understood woman in movie history. Generations of viewers think Ferguson tells us all we need to know when he sputters, "You were his girl!" at the movie's climax. But what if the woman we've come to sympathize with is neither Elster's mistress, nor a willing accessory to murder?
